One of the best cannoli in Sicily!
Aug 2019
We must have tried and tested more than 15 different cannoli during our time exploring the island of Sicily. We grabbed a couple of these from the airport store before boarding our flight home and they were incredible! So fresh, crispy, creamy - everything you want in a cannoli. Highly recommend Nonna Vincenza (we realise it's a chain but can't argue with quality!).

Pathologically nasty service
Jun 2019 • Friends
The young women working in this shop have decided that treating customers with contempt is entirely normal, acceptable and fun. Having been to the shop in the centre of Catania (and having excellent service), I was very happy to see an outlet at the airport. However within moments I realised that this was going to be a sub-optimal experience...Muttering and rude comments under the breath, sniggering, deliberate refusal to make eye contact led me to believe that this is not a serious business (or the manager of this store has no pride?).
My recommendation would be to go to literally any of the other stores at the airport if you are looking for holiday treats to take home. So poor!

Really good sweets and very friendly staff.... thank you :) We were there last night and the staff was very friendly. We bought some almond sweets which are super delicious. I have tried their cannoli before too and they are delicious as well.

There are better cannoli, however you are not allowed to get past security carrying them. Therefore, buy from this place if you wish to bring a present to someone. They are decent - but the inner chocolate coating is not part of tradition, and the ricotta cream just isn’t as rich as in other, more traditional spots.

Good morning, thank you for taking the time to write your review. I agree with you, the tradition does not include the internal coating of chocolate, but having been there for many years to serve a very demanding public of an international airport where unfortunately there are also delays of hours and hours we have sought and found, after having done innumerable tests, the escamotage of the internal coating of chocolate that keeps the crispy and crumbly wafer for several hours and acts as a waterproof for the internal filling. But for the careful and traditional palates like yours, we have for sale the Cannoli Kit, that is a package with empty wafers and saccapoche of ricotta to be filled in an express way upon arrival at the destination. As you can see there is something for everyone. Happy to have hosted you at our stores, we are still waiting for you to try tasty emotions. Nonna Vincenza

Awful service. The stuff ignores you and is totally unfriendly. The pastries are good, but better get them in the city...

Many tasty choices here
Oct 2016 • Couples
This one located in the Catania Airport is the same as the branch in central Catania and a couple of stores in Rome. It was in one store in Rome that we discovered the delicious, spicy Pate di Peperoncino e Pomodoro that they were sampling. We have begun taking the little jars home from every trip (when we can find a store). So while we were passing through the Catania Airport, we bought 8! It's that good.

The pastries looked good, too.

Since I was about to go to Catania, a friend've suggested on the way back to stop at this shop in the airport. Following his suggestion, I've bought two full trays of cannoli (consist of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta), one for the classic version and another one with the variations such as chocolate cannoli, pistachio cannoli, orange cannoli etc. I also brought back few single-portions of cassata (consists of round sponge cake moistened with fruit juices or liqueur and layered with ricotta cheese, candied peel, and a chocolate or vanilla filling).
In addition, that week there were the celebrations in honour of Saint Agata, so I also had the opportunity to try the so called 'cero di Sant'Agata' (Church candle of Saint Agata), that is a soft nougat typically made of honey, sugar, and egg white, with toasted almonds or other nuts, and shaped into a candle. Every single piece was delicious! Of course, since the shop it is near the gate, the kind staff provided a proper package to keep the pastries in perfect conditions.

We are happy you enjoyed our typical of St. Agata. If returns to Sicily also try our ice creams and granitas! See you soon
